WagerTalk Adds Rick Allec to Ownership TeamReading Time: 2 minutes

 

WagerTalk, the largest sports betting content provider in the world, has added Gold Sheet owner Rick Allec to its ownership team.

With over three decades of experience in the sports betting industry, Allec has not only worked on both sides of the counter, he has provided services and information to both.

“I have deeply respected Rick as an operator and executor for 15 years,” said WagerTalk President Lawrence Prezman. “There is no more talented, trustworthy, connected and genuinely nice guy than Rick.”

After working with some of the world’s largest bookmakers in the 1980s, Allec partnered with a betting group and was a daily regular at the Stardust opening line lottery, battling with the largest betting groups in the United States for a chance to bet the earliest lines.

As sports betting became mainstream, Allec moved into software development and created programs to help sports books manage their accounting, player tracking, and risk assessment.

In 1999, Allec joined the Don Best team and managed the release of their flagship odds products. Using his broad experience in the industry, Allec guided Don Best through massive growth, leading to one of the largest acquisitions in the space at that time.

In 2007, Allec founded SportsOptions and quickly grew the company into a force in the line service industry. With a reputation for the fastest updates, SportsOptions became a must-have tool for sports books and sports bettors around the world.

In 2017, SportsOptions merged with Don Best, and the SportsOptions software became the undisputed industry standard. SportsOptions was later acquired by Scientific Games, a multi-billion dollar global gaming company.

“Rick built two of the most respected brands in the sports gambling space: Don Best and SportsOptions,” Prezman said. “He will now be putting his experience, connections and brain power towards building the Gold Sheet. WagerTalk has the best team assembled in this industry, and Rick has made us even better.”

Founded in 1957, The Gold Sheet is the country’s longest-running sports betting newsletter. Each week, the Gold Sheet team delivers analysis on all NFL and college football games, along with key NBA and college basketball matchups. WagerTalk recently announced its intent to acquire The Gold Sheet.

“I have watched WagerTalk grow from a small, unknown website to one of the largest sites in the industry at an amazing pace,” Allec said. “Their growth is a testament to the skill and experience of the entire team, and the incredible customer service delivered to their clients.”

Founded in July 2015, WagerTalk’s team of writers, handicappers, and personalities create sports betting content from across the globe. The brand’s YouTube channel has generated 5.9 million views for its weekly sports betting videos. WagerTalk produces a daily radio show from ESPN Las Vegas, and publishes a series of almost-daily podcasts.

“Having worked with Johnny, Lawerence, and Marco for over a decade, I am excited to have the opportunity to bring the Gold Sheet into the WagerTalk group and expand on the synergies between our companies,” Allec said.

EGT Interactive will exhibit at the 12th BEGExpo in BulgariaReading Time: 2 minutes

 

EGT Interactive is happy to announce its participation on the 12th gathering of the gaming and entertainment industry in Eastern Europe – BEGExpo.

One of the biggest meeting points for the amusement industry in the Eastern European region will take place on 20th and 21st of November at its usual place – Inter Expo Center, Sofia, Bulgaria. EGT and EGT Interactive are going to be presented together at Hall 4, booth 4.1.

Stressing on its distinctive portfolio of classical casino slots, EGT Interactive will bring again one of the most exciting iGaming experiences during these two days. Along with the leading headlines like 40 Super Hot, Burning Hot series, Amazons’ Battle, Zodiac Wheel and Shining Crown, the company will show some of its latest proposals – Burning Hot and 40 Burning Hot, both with 6 reels! Volcano Wealth, 5 Juggle Fruit, Great 27 and many more.

“Except the top-notch classical slots, this year we’ll present a brand-new distinctive bonus game with four-level bonus feature – Egypt Quest. This product is well known to the players of the land-based systems and is another, real engagement for the users with some of the EGT Interactive top performing games that make them play longer and gain higher revenue. Egypt Quest differs from the familiar system with four levels of mystery Jackpot cards with a couple of features that adds new and really different iGaming experience. High hit and retention rate, simple and user-friendly gameplay, two levels of winnings are just some of the benefits. Another novelty is that a batch of six games participate in the Egypt Quest bonus game: Rise of Ra, Burning Hot, 20 Super Hot, Halloween, Circus Brilliant and Egypt Sky. They are familiar to the audience, but are placed in a separate portal and the player should consider them as different games from the already known titles. Thus, we believe that will give users another attractive chance to win” Said Irina Rusimova, Business Development Manager at EGT Interactive.

About the game
Each of the Egypt Quest jackpot levels – Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum can be won through the special Egypt Quest bonus game which is triggered by special Egypt Quest symbols or randomly during the base games and free spins. In the course of the eight Egypt Quest free spins, the player wins credits and collects special symbols “scroll”. In order to win one of the jackpot levels, the player needs to collect a certain amount of credits that exceeds a defined threshold and/or to collect 5 or more special symbols “scroll”. The player may win each of the jackpot levels with any bet placed. However, the higher the bet in the base game, the better the chance to win the highest Platinum jackpot level.
